Blizzard Reveals Diablo Immortal

During Blizzcon, the company revealed that a new Diablo title was on the way but maybe not the one fans were expecting. Diablo Immortal is a mobile game that serves as a prequel to Diablo III, taking place 20 years before the events of that game. Diablo Immortal follows on the heels of Diablo III's release to Switch, another sign that Blizzard has an interest in bearing down on mobile devices for its properties.

The game is being developed by Chinese developer NetEase Games with Blizzard adding input. Immortal will allow you to play six classes (wizard, necromancer, witch hunter, barbarian, crusader, and monk). Blizzard hasn't revealed a price point, monetization plans, or a release date yet but hopefully we'll know more soon.
